Before I get to all my big news I have to tell a little background story:
The past few weeks have been crazy busy. About 6 weeks ago our landlord decided that we didn’t pay enough for utilities, so he wanted to raise the price we paid for them. We did some calculations ourselves and turned out we were already paying way too much for utilities. So we told him we were willing to pay more if he could prove to us, we were actually spending that much, if he didn’t want to prove it, he should just let us go before our lease was up and without paying a fine.
He chose the leaving part and then decided to put our appartment up for rent with the same price for utilities but a higher rent. It was pretty much clear to us that he just wanted to raise rent and since he couldn’t do that with us in it, he wanted to get more money by raising the cost of utilities.
So we had 4 months to find a new place. We decided pretty soon that we didn’t want to go through this trouble again and decided to buy a house instead of renting one. It was a hard search. Because we’re planning on having 3 children and we both need an office/sewing area, we needed quite a big house. We also wanted a large backyard in a well-located area. I can tell you, it wasn’t easy locating anything within our budget either.
But then we found it… The perfect 5 bedroom house, with a huge backyard. It requires minimum amounts of work and I just fell in love.
So we put in our offer and a week later we got the good news!
We now actually own a house!!!
So we’re very very happy.
But that’s not the end of my story yet.
The second week of May, I wasn’t feeling MMM13 anymore. I wasn’t feeling too well, I was busy running around to get everything sorted for the new house and the weather wasn’t allowing me to wear as many Me-Mades as I wanted to. So I decided to stop taking pictures, stop blogging about it and just wear the Me-Mades I could. It felt like such a relief.
Now, I found out why I wasn’t feeling too well. I wasn’t coming down with something, apparently I’m just PREGNANT 🙂 And you can not believe how happy I am with that! We found out on Tuesday, signed the deed to our house on Wednesday so you can imagine it was a pretty hectic week.
We told our families over the weekend. My mother couldn’t stop crying, but they were happy tears 🙂
So we’re very happy to have our house and our new baby on the way (due in January).
I once said I couldn’t wait to be pregnant so I could order ALL of Megan Nielsen’s maternity patterns. Well, I splurged and I did buy them ALL!
My boyfriend is very happy as well, keeps giving little kissing on my tummy – I’m so glad he doesn’t read my blog or he would kill me for telling you this 😉
He even bought me this very very very cute set of bibs!
These will be my inspiration for the nursery, as I think they’re not gender specific and make a cute idea for both boys and girls!
So that was it. It has been a thrilling week and there is a very exciting and scary time coming, but I’m looking forward to it!
I actually got some sewing done as well this week, including a new coat, but more about that later as coats are less important than babies 🙂
